Description

This Nieves model is outfitted with a bronze titanium handle and a stonewash finished spanto blade.

If you've ever dreamed of owning a balisong knife with the flawless USA made construction of a Hinderer folding knife, you're dreams are about to come true. Pronounced "nee-YEH-ves", the Hinderer Nieves is a rock solid butterfly knife built with Rick Hinderer's trademark style and undeniable fit and finish. It's name was inspired by Captain Nieves Fernandez, the only known female Philippine Guerrilla leader who aided U.S. troops and revolutionary forces during World War II. The Nieves Balisong was created to embody her indomitable spirit and proficient knife skills.

Features:
  • Skeletonized titanium handles offer a solid, well balanced design.
  • Bushings and bronze washers provide silky smooth flipping action.
  • CPM-S35VN blade steel provides a tough blade with high corrosion resistance.

So, first off, right out of the box, it has blade tap. I tried tightening the pins even further but didnt help. This is unacceptable for a knife at this price point with bushings. Second, its unbelievably slippery. Combining the finish and the lack of any kind of notches to grip, it really doesnt feel secure even with a full fist grip. Third, it didnt come razor sharp as most knives should and do at this price point. Fourth, the latch WILL get stuck despite the small divot they cut out trying to prevent it from doing so. I wouldnt say this is a terrible balisong if it was 300-280 or less, but at 400+ i expect way more than what i received. If you compare any other knife at this price point, such as a BRS alpha beast, or literally any knife from Hom Design, or a benchmade 62 or an even cheaper 51, you get way less for the money buying this knife. I am a fairly advanced flipper and ive owned all of the knives mentioned above and than some, and i really dont like how this thing flips, at all.
Seems great. one notable flaw.

This knife is definitely built to flip. The size, weight, shape and feel are all right in the sweet spot for a perfect flipper. The machining and ano quality are top notch and the blade finish is great. It also came pretty sharp, but not a light saber. My only beef with it is that even with the pivots tightened as far as they can go, it's loose and the blade taps. these shouldn't be issues for a bali with bushings. It doesn't affect the flippability at all, but will hurt the resale value. Blade rub and tap should be expected after really breaking in a flipper but it's off out of the box, especially for a knife as high quality as this one.
